THE WRITER IS DEAD
one night only... this thursday @ artrage
Revolutionary spoken word collective The Furphy Project return with a night of artists at the forefront of Perth’s avant-garde. As they premiere new works, witness the resuscitation of poetry through shots of new media, electronic music and live art.
Fresh from respective successful eastern states tours, experience the anxious suburban hyperactivity of Tomás Ford’s Cabaret Of Death; Gabrielle Everall’s randy musicngs on love/lust; and the full-thrust political polemics of the Antipoet - with cello by Kevin Gillam. Expect: performed poetry vs new-media fusions; sex-textual video projections; spoken word electronica and musicasious hybridity!
Filling the line-up out into a full night of entertainment, The Denton Duo will also perform their electronic stand up storytelling and several open mic slots will be available for new performers to get up and upstage the headliners.
The show takes place on Thursday, October 28 at The Bakery on James Street (entry down side of Metro City) in Northbridge as part of this year’s Artrage program. Entry is $5. [ see also artrage.com.au ]
